ProvenanceA fauteuil is a style of open-arm chair with a primarily exposed wooden frame originating in France in the early 18th century.
A fauteuil is made of wood, and frequently with carved relief ornament. It is typically upholstered on the seat, the seat back and on the arms (manchettes). Some fauteuils have a valenced front seat rail which is padding that extends slightly over the apron. The exposed wooden elements are often gilded or otherwise painted.
